Unlike Sunday’s race when the wind calmed right down as the athletes zeroed, the wind only picked up as today’s race start neared. And even more so afterwards making for some challenging conditions. It might be just me but it seemed like the wind would only picked up when I was shooting. It wasn’t my fastest shooting bouts but I made every shot count, hitting 19 out of 20 targets. On course I was getting tired after the fifth race in a span of a week, but I was still skiing well. As I crossed the finish line, all indications were that I had finished second. After a Jury decision however I was awarded the victory. It has been an incredible first World Cup especially with it being in my backyard. I get a little time to recover before I fly across the Atlantic for the bulk of the World Cup races this year.
